Moral theology is much more than a simple consideration of right and wrong. The Essential Moral Handbook will help readers grasp the basic principles of moral theology in the Roman Catholic tradition and apply them to their own lives. This handbook leads to solid answers that respect human dignity, promote the rights of the individual, and stress the importance of personal responsibility.
The Essential Moral Handbook will provide valuable assistance to lay ministers, members of evangelical teams, parents mentoring their children in the basics of the faith, RCIA candidates, teachers, and those who want a review of moral issues in light of current events.
